The Kentucky Humane Society (KHS) and Louisville Metro Animal Services (LMAS) invite the public to celebrate “Louisville’s largest baby shower” by bringing gifts for shelter kittens. Both agencies are hosting kitten showers at their main adoption centers on Sunday, March 12, 1-3 p.m.

The kitten showers will take place at the KHS East Campus at 1000 Lyndon Lane and the LMAS Animal House Adoption Center at 3516 Newburg Road in Louisville.

Kitten shower guests will learn about fostering opportunities, kitten care and the importance of spaying and neutering. There will be kittens, activities for the kids, raffles, grab bags and refreshments. Guests are asked to bring much-needed items such as:

  • KMR (kitten milk replacer) cans and powder (please, no "Second Step" KMR)
  • Heating pads or microwavable heating discs and covers
  • Unscented baby wipes
  • Small blankets/bedding
  • Clay litter
  • Cans of soft pate kitten food
  • Small stuffed toys
  • Gauze pads
  • Gram scales
  • Small litter boxes
  • Feeders Supply gift cards
  • Cash donations

KHS foster coordinator Kayla Saylor said that both agencies are looking for new foster caregivers. “Fostering mother cats and kittens is a fun, rewarding way to help needy animals. The animals live in your home until the kittens are old enough to be spay/neutered and adopted – usually a few weeks. KHS and LMAS provide all the necessary supplies. Our foster families provide love and care.”

“Spring is the start of ‘kitten season,’ when the majority of kittens are born in our community,” said Stephanie Jackson, LMAS foster coordinator. “While this is an exciting time, we remind the public that spaying and neutering is critically important. Our shelters are overwhelmed this time of year with needy animals, and donations are very much appreciated.”
